Luxury Travel: 3 Ways To Upgrade Your Travel Experience

Any vacation or trip can be extremely relaxing and leave you in a very happy mood. And yet, there are ways to take the average experience and make it even better. Luxury travel brings all the regular joys of traveling with some new things to increase your mood and enhance the entire adventure. 

If you’re keen to experience luxury travel for the first time, here are three ways to upgrade your experience: 

Book a better seat class

As you’re well aware, many airlines offer different seat classes when booking. In most cases, you have four options to pick from: 


  • Economy/coach
  • Premium economy
  • Business class
  • First class


Not all airlines will offer every single level, but you will usually see at least two options on international flights. Economy is the cheapest and also provides the worst experience. If you’d like to enjoy a more luxurious travel experience, upgrade to a better class. Business is extremely luxurious and you’ll get loads of free perks like extra legroom, private seats, etc. First class is the highest you can go and some premium airlines offer unique features like private showers on the plane

Flying in a better and more expensive seat is one of the easiest ways to get your trip off to a great start. It’s far more relaxing, you’re way more comfortable and you have fewer people in your personal area. 

Look for resorts instead of hotels

A hotel can be great, but what you really need is a luxury resort. Resorts take the hotel concept and add loads to it. As a result, you get a luxurious experience that’ll make you feel like royalty. Most resorts offer the following on top of excellent rooms and suites: 


  • Countless pools
  • Spas & wellness areas
  • Open bars
  • Free food
  • Free room service


In essence, you’ll stay somewhere that gives you everything you need for a fantastic location. You enjoy wonderful weather, relaxed surroundings, all the food you could ask for, and much more. Staying at luxury resorts will make you wonder why you ever chose to book a hotel in your life. Many are better situated in some of the most central areas of a city or seaside location too, which means even if you head outside of the resort, you can enjoy delicious restaurants with fantastic culinary diversity. 

Get a private airport transfer

The final way you can upgrade any trip to make it better is by getting a private airport transfer. Instead of waiting in line for a local taxi or packing onto a small shuttle bus, you can take the stress out of getting from the airport to your hotel. 

Booking a private transfer service means you hop off the plane and go straight into a private car that takes you where you need to be. You don’t have to worry about timing or being surrounded by other people, and it’s the same on the way back. 

If you’ve got a trip planned for later this year or next summer, why don’t you treat yourself to some luxury upgrades? You can pick any of the things above and they’ll improve your experience on their own. When combined together, they deliver a luxury travel experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
